Application Process
An applicant is required to submit a Fellow Programme (FP) Application Form 2011 for each area of specialization that (s)he applies for. Application forms are to be downloaded from the IIMC website: http://www.iimcal.ac.in/programs/FPM/. If an applicant is unable to download the Form, (s)he can get the Forms physically collected from: The Fellow Programme Office, IIM Calcutta, Diamond Harbour Road, Kolkata 700104.

Completed Application Form(s) must be submitted along with an Application Fee of Rs.300. This fee should be paid by a crossed demand draft for Rs. 300/- payable to “Indian Institute of Management Calcutta” on a bank in Kolkata. An SC/ST/OBC applicant need not pay the application fee as long (s)he sends an attested photocopy of his/her SC/ST/OBC certificate.

When applying to two areas of specialization, an applicant is required to submit two separate application forms, complete in all respects, one for each area of specialization. However, a single payment of the application fee of Rs. 300/- will suffice for each applicant, as long as (s)he submits the two application forms at the same time (e.g., in the same mailing).
For each area of specialization applied for, two letters of recommendation (in the prescribed format) are required. Blank forms for recommendation letters, and instructions on how to return them, are contained in the Application Forms.
Applicant must ensure that a submitted Application Form is complete in all respects. Along with the Form, the applicant is required to submit the following “supporting documents”:
Certified Documents: Provide attested copies of transcripts of Academic Records/Mark Sheets/ GMAT/GATE/GRE/UGC-JRF test scores. Attestation may be done by a Faculty Member of a College/University/IIM, by a Member of a Legislative Assembly, or by a Gazetted Officer. A “key” to a transcript’s letter grade system should be included wherever necessary.
Research Summaries: Enclose summaries of your published or unpublished research work.
Completed Application Forms should reach the following address by January 24, 2011: Administrative Officer – Fellow Programmes and Research, Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, Diamond Harbour Road, Kolkata 700104.

An applicant who is a graduate of any one of the two-year full-time Post Graduate Programmes of any one of the Indian Institutes of Management with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of no less than 6.00/9.00 (or its equivalent), or a degree-holder of the PGDBM Programme of IIM Calcutta with a CGPA of no less than 6.5/9.00 does not need to take any Admission Test. (S)he can apply directly using the FP Application Form(s). (S)he has to pay the application fee, and meet the application deadline. After submission of Application Form(s), the selection procedure followed for such a candidate will be identical to that of all other candidates.

NRI/Foreign Applicants
An Indian student who is, or has been, a Non-resident Indian, can apply to the Fellow Programme, as can a foreign student. Irrespective of the specialization(s) that such a candidate applies for, (s)he can request that the GMAT be considered the appropriate Admission Test for him/her. (S)he needs to have taken the GMAT no earlier than 24th January, 2008 if (s)he does not hold a foreign MBA degree, and no earlier than 24th January, 2006 if (s)he does hold a foreign MBA degree.

Such an applicant must comply with the same Application Process as a domestic student – submit completed Application Form(s), pay the Application Fee, and satisfy all other criteria stated above (or their equivalents).

Interview Process
Once all valid applications are in, a subset of candidates will be short-listed (on the basis of their Admission Test scores) for an interview process. All short-listed candidates will be called for personal interviews at the IIM Calcutta campus during late March/early April 2011. Domestic candidates will be reimbursed actual AC 3-tier return train fare by the shortest route.

In a first round, candidates will be interviewed by faculty members in the area(s) of specialization to which the candidates have applied. Those who qualify in the first round will be subsequently interviewed by the faculty members of the Fellow Programme Committee, who will make the final selection decisions.
